I picked this up today. I met up w/a Garand collector that generously agreed to let one of his nicer pieces go. The fact that he just picked up 5 more at the recent GCA Convention in Alabama helped a bit... :D

We put 3-4 clips of ammo thru it, sighting it in to my specs. I didn't get it perfect, but that'll come.

It's a '53 receiver and barrel, rebuilt in '65. The stock is an near mint USGI, with a nice cartouche. I couldn't be happier with it!

Sorry, but the ceiling's too low to let me stand on the pool table (that's where I took the pics...)

$800. Considering comparable rifles are well over $1K on Gunbroker and from CMP, I think I did okay...

you did GREAT. I was in a Big 5 store earlier today and they wanted $800 for a beat to crap Garand.
